About 40 per cent of 1,970 secondary school pupils surveyed last month by the Boys' and Girls' Clubs Association did not do any exercise apart from physical education classes. Half of them said they had no time for exercise, and 40 per cent said they were lazy. Researchers said this behaviour would put a strain on the city's health resources in the long run.
